Abstract

In this Letter, we report for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, continuous-wave laser background illumination (BGI) as a simple and yet useful tool to tune nanosecond transient absorption (TA) in a-Ge25As10Se65 thin films. In our experiments, we observed remarkable blueshift in TA as a function of the BGI intensity. Strikingly, relaxations of TA in background-illuminated samples are much faster than the as-prepared samples. This observation provides new insights into the bond-breaking mechanism. Further, decay time constants of TA are wavelength dependent, which signifies that excited carriers have a longer lifetime in deep traps than in shallow traps.
